Film Screening! Join us for seeking asian female!

Good Ol' Girls No Comments »

film photo 2 Good Ol’ Girls is extremely excited to host a screening of seeking asian female this November. This award-winning film by local San Francisco director Debbie Lum has been called “mesmerizing” by the Wall Street Journal and “an absolutely extraordinary documentary” by the Austin Indie Film Examiner. Join us for a special screening of seeking asian female on Wednesday, November 12th in San Francisco. Tickets include a pre-film Mix & Mingle reception and a post-film Q&A with director Debbie Lum.

About the film:
seeking asian female is an eccentric modern love story about Steven and Sandy, an aging white man with “yellow fever” who is obsessed with marrying any Asian woman, and the young Chinese bride he finds online. Debbie, a Chinese American filmmaker, documents and narrates with skepticism and humor, from the early stages of Steven’s search, through the moment Sandy steps foot in America for the first time, to a year into their precarious union. Global migration, Sino-American relations and the perennial battle of the sexes, weigh in on the fate of their marriage in this intensely captivating personal documentary.

Join us Wednesday, November 12th at the Little Roxie (view map).

6-7pm: Mix & Mingle w/light snacks & refreshments
7pm: Film Screening
8:20pm: Q&A w/Director Debbie Lum

This event is $14 for Good Ol’ Girls members and non-members alike. Purchase tickets online from the Roxy Box Office.
